I wanted an embroidery machine so I could make labels for my quilts and make patches for my husband's high school tennis team. We spend $10 a patch and after playing with my machine, I know I will be able to make them much cheaper. So many things to learn about this new hobby. This is the first successful snowflake I made today. I will get a small embroidery hoop and turn it into a Christmas tree ornament.
It takes a long time to stitch out and the thread broke about a dozen times. I think I need different thread. I remember when I first got my quilting machine and it kept shredding the thread until I finally found some threads it liked.
I know this is going to be a fun and addictive new hobby. And the best part will be that I can start up the machine and do some sewing or quilting and then check on it when it beeps at me. It is mesmerizing to watch though!
